The man who created the first balloon-powered car in America, says he is now an advocate for the new technology.
“I’ve been involved in the technology for years, but I just didn’t know how to put it into a vehicle that could be used by people,” David H. Johnson, founder of the Balloon Powered Car Company, told FoxNews.com.
“I thought it would be a little too dangerous.”
The idea of using balloons to deliver a balloon filled with oxygen-filled air has been around since the 1960s, but it wasn’t until 2013 that Johnson and his brother, Jim, developed the technology that can be driven on wheels.
The brothers first took to the air in a vintage Bessie Blue airplane.
They say they never expected to be driving a vehicle on wheels, but they are now selling the technology as a “brave innovation” that has “been in the back of my mind” ever since.
The family has been selling the balloon-driven car technology on the internet since 2012, and the Hens say the sales are still growing.
The company is offering an unlimited supply of their products for free online and at a local dealership.
Johnson says his company is also offering to replace your vehicle if it breaks down.
“We know what the market wants.
It’s not just us, it’s all the people in the world,” Johnson said.”
Our goal is to help people get on their feet and start their new lives and create jobs for the future,” he said.

Johnson’s brother Jim Johnson, center, has also been involved with the development of the company.
Johnson said he is excited to share his expertise and that he hopes the technology will help people be more successful with their business.
“A lot of people in our industry, they’re like, ‘I just want to get started,’ and we’re like ‘you know, we’re just going to wait,'” Johnson said, “and then they realize they’re not going to be successful in the long run.”
